Bunny Money

Hello friends,
I wanted to share a super quickie card I made for my boys for Easter. Making cards for boys or men are hard, right??? Especially if they happen to be related to me! But I thought I would remind them that even though they're growing older, they're still my little bunnies.
Here are the cards I made for them:
The carrot part holds some yummy Jelly Bellies and the leafy part is their favorite green stuff---> MONEY! This was so simple to do. You can crank these out in mere minutes! Wanna see how??? Here's a quick little tut for ya!

Step 1:
 Using Heart Nesties make a heart pocket by folding a piece of cardstock in half & cutting it out but leaving the folded edge inside of the cut lines. Add adhesive to one side to form the pocket. No heart Nesties? No problem. Make a heart freehand.

Step 2: The Leafy Part
Initially, I was going to use regular green cardstock, but then I thought they would rather see some real green! I used $1 bills cuz I was trying it out & I didn't want to waste $5 or more if my concoction didn't work! Hee!
 I used my score board to score the money so it would be easier to fold (at every 1/4") just like you were making rosettes. You can just eyeball it & accordian fold.
Step 3: Fold along the creases.

Step 4: Add REMOVABLE adhesive along the edge & fold to create a fan.

 Stick a fork in it cuz it's done! Now just assemble your carrot. I added some (removable) glue dots to hold it to the card.


Here's a peek at each one:

I had to keep it simple since my boys don't go for frilly :( but if you make these for a little girl you can have a blast! The finished size is a standard card size- A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").

Thanks so much for peeking today! Hope you liked this quickie little project :)
Gotta Go!
